County Council should take lead in developing marine industry – Mc Garvey

A Donegal councillor says the Department of the Marine, Inland Fisheries Ireland and other agencies should be invited to a special council meeting to discuss how best to develop marine based industries.

Cllr Ian Mc Garvey says there is huge untapped potential, particularly in the Fanad pensinsula, and what is needed for local people to be given guidance and encouragement.
